Here are some of the things Christine Quinn had to say about the rocket blast near the place in Sderot, Israel, where she and other council members are visiting.
“We went to the kibbutz, and the rocket hit two or three yards away from the kibbutz’s clinic. The impact of the rocket had blown all of the windows out of the kibbutz. It hit very close — I’d say only a yard from somebody’s home.”
“When we got there, the bomb squad or the equivalent thereof determined that it had exploded. So there were military personnel, police personnel I think they were actually, taking the rocket out of the ground and taking it away as evidence.”
“It really deepens your commitment to Israel and my commitment to the fact that Israel has every right to protect and defend itself.”
